I love it , feels premium , just all you need to enhance your workflow

Terrible software

By Charles
Rated 2 out of 5

This is a terrible product do not buy. The hardware has potential but the software is one of the worst I have come across. It filled will bugs and constantly freezes up on my m1 Mac studio. Always have to restart computer to get software to work again. I can not believe how bad this software is for a $499.00 item. I gave 2 stars because in the few times it worked the hardware has a lot of potential.

Great multipurpose controller

Loupedeck CT was easy to set up and get profiles loaded/created for several applications like Cubase, Camtasia and other music production apps. Only thing that wish was different was that the button bank were real tactile push buttons not just a touch surface with a tactile mask.

Not for Capture One or Windows

By Wendy
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-26

I like the concept of the Loupedeck, and except for the touch screen the hardware seems to be good quality. The purple on many of the keys and icons seems to be generated by having red and blue offset from each other, which causes double images, and the touchscreen itself seems to generate odd patterns, as if two layers weren't quite connected. The integration with Lightroom seemed to work pretty well, so I was excited to try it with Capture One. That wasn't so impressive -- when it works (which isn't all that often) it's quite slow. I was going to reduce the rating to three stars for that. Then I discovered that when waking the (Windows 11) computer from sleep, the loupedeck won't reconnect. I have to unplug it and plug it in to a different physical USB port. I'd have to say it's a great idea whose implementation leaves a lot to be desired.

Gave it as a gift to my son, to improve workflow. There is a learning curve with this, but it helps cut edit time down, once you set it up and figure the best location in your editing system.

Honestly, it's a GAMECHANGER!!!

By Ivan

Honestly, in the beginning, before I bought the product (a year ago) I used too much Loupedeck Plus. I got so used to it that I kept my eyes on the screen, just as I type on the keyboard. All the buttons were saved as a location and I did the processing like a robot. I processed footage from engagements like weddings (with at least 2000 photos) in less than 24 hours by sorting and completely retouching all the shots... until one day I realized that the buttons I reprogram forget and don't use. One sunny day I decided to try Loupedeck CT and that was the moment I realized I was wasting my time with other products and hadn't bought it before! Many people write negative reviews, others complain that it is difficult for them, but I think this device is for people with aspirations! People who want to create their own work environment for all needs and in ONE DEVICE! I no longer need to remember what shortcuts I created, because the screens and touch buttons visualize in a way that we create ourselves. A unique feature is that you can rotate the device in any direction and change the orientation from the settings. I work mainly with Lightroom and DaVinci. I have created absolutely all the options that I use on shortcuts and I can work on the computer only with Loupdeck CT without the need for a mouse and keyboard! But here comes the only drawback :( and it is that at the moment there is no official support for Bluetooth connectivity with MacOS, otherwise, if there was maybe I would go to heaven, because I could with the greatest pleasure to work from bed! I don't want to encourage you for anything, but for me Loupedeck CT compared to everything else is like everyone driving their cars with square tires and I having round ones and explaining how much better it is! Must HAVE! All my friends bought such device after watching me, how easily I work!

Not Sure If The Loupdeck Helps

The Loupdeck seems capable of many thinks. The big issue I'm having is that I'm so use to use a trackpad and keyboard on my iMac that I am not using the Loupdeck. It's hard to unlearn what took years to learn. I may be returning it.

The best workflow speeder

Im using this device for just 3 days and already noticed a great improve in my workflow using AfterFx using the presets already configured. As soon as I learn to configure it I believe it will speed my workflow much more (not only in AfterFX but also in all other Adobe programs). Its really a game changer.
